" ... and stagger not ... ."
Stagger: "to move or stand unsteadily, as if under a great weight; totter; to begin to lose confidence or strength of purpose; waver."
The blows of the world have made most of us stagger. We move unsteadily, under a great weight. Indeed, some of the Catholic faith have even lost confidence or strength of purpose.
With the scandals and unending lukewarmness of most of the hierarchy, coupled with weak liturgies, it is easy to fall prey to this stagger.
For the body blows to the Body of Christ at this time are, like His Passion Itself, merciless.
In fact, we have gone from the Alpha of Church history to the Omega, in that, in the beginning believers' bodies were killed; now today, believers' souls are destroyed.
Is it because we have questioned our faith?
Questioned our prayers? Questioned believing that He will answer them?
It is an ultimate end-times attack, for it dilutes the true power we have.
The power to overcome the evil of this world, not only for ourselves as individuals, but for all the peoples and nations.
And, most importantly, the Power to build upon that which more powerful people than ourselves have left us as their legacy.
Christ is, indeed, First Himself in this.
And while He has not left us orphans, He has given certain of His vicars the Inspiration of the Holy Ghost to do what only they could do.
Now we, as the faithful, most tap into these great treasure troves and renew them, not only for ourselves but for His Kingdom. That is if we truly want His Kingdom on Earth as it is in Heaven.
In this, we ask the question: why did Pope Leo XIII feel compelled to consecrate the human race to the Sacred Heart on June 11, 1899?
The answer is simple. It was Christ Himself Who requested it through the humble nun, Blessed Mary of the Divine Heart (find out who she is in the photo link below).
The pope initially did not believe her. But in January of 1899, she wrote a letter to Leo XIII mentioning an illness that the public was unaware of and that Christ our King would heal the pontiff in order that he may perform the requested consecration.
In May of that year, outlining the reasons he would consecrate even non-Christians to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, an usual step for any pontiff, Leo XIII referred to the fact that "There is one further reason that urges us to realize our design; We do not want it to pass by unnoticed. It is personal in nature but just as important: God the author of all Good has saved us by healing us recently from a dangerous disease."
Leo knew only God Himself could be behind the revelation of his disease to Blessed Mary and its cure. It was an unmistakable sign as to Christ's desire for this consecration.
And what did Leo think of this consecration, the same pope who had the vision of the last battle for the Church and who composed the St. Michael prayer?
Leo XIII called this immensely important consecration, "the greatest act of my pontificate."
If there were any need further need for miraculous confirmation of the importance of this act, Jesus will give it when, as only God could, He called Blessed Mary of the Divine Heart home on the very day the Feast of the Sacred Heart was being celebrated June 9, 1899.
Two days later, on June 11th, Leo will fulfill Christ's request and, for the first time in history, the entire human race, believer and non-believer, will be, as Jesus requested, consecrated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. (Is this not a reminder of the Mercy of God as the Father spoke to Mother Eugenia and Jesus to Saint Faustina?)
By October 17, 1925, Pope Pius XI will issue a decree that the Leo XIII consecration is to be publicly recited on the Feast of our Lord Jesus Christ, the King, on the last Sunday of October.
Yet, when was the last time you heard this prayer recited in your parish in the last 86 years?
Has any parish ever heard the words Christ the same yesterday, today and forever?
And if that is not enough for the "new" Church, then the faithful only need look at the fact that John Paul the Great deemed it spiritually necessary to repeat the consecration of Leo XIII on the very same day 100 years later, June 11, 1999. A critical act that helped to usher in the New Millennium and a precursor to the October 8, 2000 consecration to the Immaculata.
This brings us now to 2011.
On July 1st, the Feast of the Sacred Heart will be celebrated.
Will our priests and bishops renew the Leo XIII consecration or even that of John Paul?
Or will there be just some nice watered-down prayers, a few platitudes and the surface-only sermon on the importance of loving the Sacred Heart of Jesus?
We, as individuals, can go beyond that for we are Children of God.
We can go where, we believe, the Lord wants us to go.
We can go where His vicars have gone (who were not afraid to invoke Christ's Kingship even over the "darkness of islamism" as Leo's consecration states, found at the bottom left panel).
We can go if we want to.
If we want to truly change the world and usher in the Reign of the Sacred Hearts.
But it does take some effort.
We all will actually have to pray Leo's consecration prayer as One Body of Believers, on the very day dedicated to the Sacred Heart.
In this prayer, as part of the force of believers, we truly do have power beyond our temporal comprehension, especially on this important feast day, repeating John Paul's act 12 years later.
Indeed, repeating this powerful consecration every First Friday thereafter.
Even until Christ the King returns and Reigns!
Making that type of choice can make us receive far quicker than a waiting-around attitude.
In this, let us remember the Words of our King.
An enemy, Jesus said, is a thorn around His head; a lukewarm soul is a thorn around His Heart.
A true friend is considered one “that whatsoever you shall ask of the Father in My Name, He may give it to you” John 15:14-16.
According, of course, to the Will of God.
Is it of the Will of God for His Son to Reign on Earth as He does already in Heaven?
Then, if we are truly His friends, we must ask to receive for this Final Act of Great Mercy to be given to us and a world desperately in need of it.
Unless, of course, if one is already satisfied with the world the way it is and staggers to believe that, through prayer, we can move mountains.
Only the individual believer can decide.
A thorn or a rose.
"And Jesus answering, said to them: 'Amen, I say to you, if you shall have faith, and stagger not, not only this of the fig tree shall you do, but also if you shall say to this mountain, Take up and cast thyself into the sea, it shall be done. And in all things whatsoever you shall ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive.' "
Sacred Heart of Jesus
adored by Saint Ignatius of Loyola
and Saint Louis Gonzaga.
The month of June, as Catholics know, is dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
So what does the devil have the world engaged in?
Let's begin with the dedication of the month of June by no one less than the president of the United States (and it does not matter who is in the Oval Office, although the current character is quite a piece of antichrist work).
Why the month of June for the United States is not dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus but to "LGBT Pride Month."
We're sorry, but while we do not and cannot judge any individual, for that is for God and God only to do, we do condemn a community [warning: graphic images in this link that prove the Truth of our statement] that more often than not is outwardly blasphemous to Catholic beliefs and the holiness of Jesus and Mary.
If there is any further proof of the devil trying to devote attention away from the Sacred Heart with this nonsense, we only need look at what else happened in this important month.
Why, gasp, did not the so-called "Bilderbergers" meet during this time?
And at what time would that be?
Why during the very days when both great Popes Leo XIII and John Paul II consecrated the entire human race to our Sacred Heart King.
Coincidence? Of course, if one does not believe.
Just like the unbelieving "elites" of the world, who at this critical juncture ignored the rights of the King of the World, and, instead, made their own agenda, trampling upon His.
Even at the time of this writing, the world agenda continues to offend the sinless King and His Immaculate Mother as the UN votes to press for the so-called "rights" of those who mock the true institution of marriage.
On a Friday, no less, the UN passed a resolution to determine "how to best promote and protect the human rights of LGBT persons."
Indeed, how much longer before it will considered a "crime" to speak out against LGBT "rights"?
If this is not evidence that the battle rages before us, what is?
Yet, even still, we expect to blessed as a nation when, instead, our "institutions" continue to blaspheme God in the name of artistic "freedom."
The latest, once again, the Brooklyn Museum dishonors Christ as the originator of a nationwide tour. Is this not the same museum that blasphemed the Mother of Christ before the World Trade Center attack?
What, then, can we, as a nation, expect? Blessing or the removal of His Hand of Protection?
Consecration of the
Human Race to the
Sacred Heart of Jesus
This consecration was
issued with the Apostolic Brief
of Pope Pius XI in 1925.
Most sweet Jesus, Redeemer of the human race, look down upon us humbly prostrate before Thy Altar. We are Thine, and Thine we wish to be; but to be more surely united with Thee, behold each one of us freely consecrates himself today to Thy Most Sacred Heart.
Many indeed have never known Thee; many too, despising Thy precepts, have rejected Thee. Have mercy on them all, most merciful Jesus, and draw them to Thy Sacred Heart!
Be Thou King, O Lord, not only of the faithful who have never forsaken Thee, but also of the prodigal children who have abandoned Thee; grant that they may quickly return to their Father’s House lest they die of wretchedness and hunger.
Be Thou King of those who are deceived by erroneous opinions, or whom discord keeps aloof, and call them back to the Harbor of Truth and the unity of faith, so that soon, there may be but one flock and one Shepherd.
Be Thou King of all those who are still involved in the darkness of idolatry or of islamism, and refuse not to draw them all into the Light and Kingdom of God.
Turn Thine eyes of mercy toward the children of that race, once Thy chosen people. Of old they called down upon themselves the Blood of the Savior; may it now descend upon them a laver of redemption and of life.
Grant, O Lord, to Thy Church, assurance of freedom and immunity from harm; give peace and order to all nations, and make the Earth resound from pole to pole with one cry: praise be to the Divine Heart that wrought our salvation! To It be glory and honor for ever.
